As anyone knows they grow and they grow.. overnight they turn into gargantuan veggies...
I was" gifted" with several......
I kindly "gifted' one to my next door neighbour Barb.
She thanked me, she really did.
The largest one I turned into grated zucchini for mid winter baking, removing the spongy center and seeds....
|Into the freezer they go!|
The baby zucchini of the group was turned into a veggie dish that is more than filling. Used it as a side dish for supper last night and the left overs today will be added to some cooked pasta for another meal.
This recipe is based on an Italian recipe.....
1 tsp. oil
1 med. onion, sliced or chopped ( used red onion)
1 medium zucchini, about 3- 4cups chopped
2 tomatoes, peeled, chopped( added 1 cup of cherry tomatoes as well)
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2- 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
|Aren't the colours fantastic?|
This was a good dish but in future would add more garlic, perhaps some oregano and more cheese......maybe even more green pepper .
come mid winter when I use one of the bags of grated zucchini it will be with fond memories of the hot sunny warm days that grew this giant veggie.
Tomorrow Chocolate Zucchini Pecan Bread.
